This week, in the last episode of the season, we look at the methodical, often slow progress of justice, and pull at one final thread: the ominous connections between BitConnect and India’s ruling party, the conservative BJP.

"Crypto Crooks" is sponsored by Chainalysis.

BitConnect’s nefarious tentacles reached across the world. So did the impact of its downfall and the fates of its architects. 

In our season finale, we take stock of the BitConnect saga, from the legal fallout to the implications for crypto at large. We also take one last glance backward to think about why it all happened … and whether there might have been an invisible hand pulling the strings.

We provide data, software, services, and research to government agencies, Web3 companies, financial institutions, and insurance and cybersecurity companies.
